Embattled King Faisal Babies have signed former Asante Kotoko midfielders, Daniel Nii Adjei and Mike Akuffo, to bolster their team as the Kumasi-based club fight their way out of the relegation zone after a poor start in the Premier League season.

The two players bring a wealth of experience to Faisal, who are yet to win a game after six matches this season and lie 17th on the league log.

Nii Adjei, 30, is a former winner of the CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup  during his stint with T.P. Mazembe, having previously won three Ghana Premier League championships and two Super Cup titles with Kotoko.

Akuffo, 23, is a also well-travelled, having played in Lebanon and Finland.

During his stint with Kotoko, the defensive midfielder won three back-to-back league titles with the Porcupine Warriors.

Awal Mohammed, Public Relations Officer (PRO) of Faisal, told the GNA Sports in Kumasi that the arrival of the two experienced midfielders would boost the confidence of their relatively young teammates and lift the burden off the shoulders of 17-year old Charles Adu-Gyamfi, Frimpong Boateng and Latif Mohammed.

“We are likely to feature the two midfield players in our upcoming matches as the technical team is satisfied with their output since joining the club,” the Faisal PRO noted.

Faisal could unleash the midfield duo against struggling Inter Allies when the two sides clash at the Accra Sports Stadium with the visiting side chasing their first win of the season. --GNA
